Dear Justice Author:Juliet Lowell A book for the just, the unjust, and those who just like to laugh. The woman responsible for this book has been reading other people's mail and laughing her head off since 1932, when her first collection of wacky correstpondence, DUMB-BELLES LETTRES, had us rolling in the aisles. — Since then she has ranged, at her own peril, through tons of pri... more »vate communications - coming up with such laugh hits as DEAR DOCTOR, DEAR SIR, DEAR MR. CONGRESSMAN, etc.
Now her risible eye is focused on ways of a man with a lawyer - and the results are about to make history, legal or otherwise.
There are about 200 letters in this collection and they have been carefully culled from the files of some of our most illustrious men of law - Judge Learned Hand, and Supreme Court Justices Brennan and Burton, to name a few. Also represented are distinguished judges, solicitors, and barristers from many forein countries.
One prime example from Paris: "Dear M. Sauerwein: I'm 72 years old and have been charged with rape. I'm so flattered that I want to plead guilty."« less
